Happily Ever AfterWhewNormally he constant push pull ugging of fighting and I hate you No I hate you would be romance novel kryptonite for me I despise hat as a plot propeller But crazily it works in Sins, The Gita Karma this book And it is exciting because never once do you doubthat Addison and Shane are in love no obsessed with each other Yeah hey are mean manipulative snarky whichI LOVED but heir Romeo Juliet esue Clarkson on Cars travails are interesting as hello watch The story moves at such a snapping pace hat you really feel like you are simply holding on for he ride Moments of WTF get interspersed with he general normalcy of wo divorced parents who exchange heir kid for he weekend This is indeed a romance novel But it doesn color within he romance novel lines As a matter of fact it feels like he authors are gleefully willfully avoiding he lines with great result This is exactly Tangled Sheets, Tangled Lies the sort of envelope pushing nearly genre bending readhat I am

often But hey are also kids who grew up with wo battling parents and after a ime decide o ake matters in heir own hands Yeah Deception So Deadly there are moments whenhere was a little Deus Ex Machina going on but I didn The Prayers and Meditations of St. Anselm The Proslogion t mind because I likedhat he action in he book is decisive The authors have a good instinct about not allowing hings o drag on so stuff doesn The Dragon Token t getoo repetitive and edious At a little over halfway hrough Addison and Shane have a revelation and he #2nd part of he book changes one and becomes less about hem
